Whipped cream is a great topping for dessert, cake,cookies etc . In India it is not easily available in the market.Here we get low fat cream like Amul Fresh Cream. It is to be said that Whipped cream can not be made by using this low fat cream,but my daughter loves whipped cream on her cake,cup cake,cookies. .so whenever I make cake,cupcakes at home she wants all these with a dollop of Whipped cream.So I tried to make whipped cream by using Amul Fresh Cream at home and I succeed.Today
I am going to share step by step recipe of Whipped Cream at home by using Amul Fresh Cream.
Whipped cream is cream that has been beaten by a electric mixer, whisk until it is light and fluffy. All you need is two chilled bowl and a whisk (or electric mixer) , cold cream, some powdered sugar, and few minutes of your time.
If you use any dairy whipped cream or store bought whipped cream like Pillsbury Vanilla Whipped Cream .then you have to whip following this method...without whipping it can not be fluffy.
Preparation Time-10 minutes
Making Time -20 minutes
Servings -2cups Whipped Cream from 1 cup Fresh Cream
Low Fat Cream -1 pack
Icing or Powdered sugar -2 tbsp(for home made Icing sugar. .follow the recipe link
HOMEMADE ICING OR CONFECTIONERS OR POWDERED SUGAR.
Vanilla essence-1tsp (if you want flavoured
whipped cream )
Bowls-(one big and other one comparatively smaller
Ice Cubes-7-8 pieces
Electric beater or Hand Whisk -1pc
Put cream in refrigerator ...chill the cream for atleast 1 hour....as the cream has to be very cold for whipping.
Place the small mixing bowl and hand whisk into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes, if you use electric beater then no need to put in fridge.
Fill the big bowl with ice cubes. .
Take out the small bowl and whisk from fridge. .put the small bowl in the ice cubes filled big bowl (as shown in the picture)
Take out cream from refrigerator.. ..pour the cream into a bowl through a strainer. .in that way, thick cream will be separated from thin or watery cream.
Pour the thick cream into the small bowl and start whipping the cream using a electric beater or hand whisk. .if you use electric beater. .do whipping your cream at medium speed..it will take 10 minute.....if you use hand whisk...then it will take 15 to 20 minutes to get a fluffy whipped cream. ..
after 5 minutes,add powdered sugar...and vanilla essence. .if you want you can add any other flavour of essence. ..or if you want your whipped cream without any flavour. .then do not need to add any essence.
For continuous 15 to 20 minutes you have to whip the cream. If your one hand gets tired...then whip with your another hand...or ask for somebody 's help at home...but do not stop whipping until it doubles in volume and forms soft peaks.
Now garnish your cake,cupcakes or any dessert with this whipped cream. ..or you can make chocolate mousse, pecan pie using this whipped cream and make your kids happy.
Whipped cream is a popular topping for fruit and desserts such as pie, ice cream, cupcakes, cake, milkshakes,waffles and puddings...make sure tour desserts are enough cold before topping with whipped cream. ..otherwise whipped cream will get melted. It is also served on coffee, Whipped cream is used as an ingredient in many desserts and as a filling for layer cakes.
Store any unused portion in an airtight container for up to 10 hours. When ready to use, rewhisk for 10 to 15 seconds.
Light, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth whipped cream makes a delicious topping for desserts or cupcake or pie .... Unfortunately, it can not be used when you want cute piping designs that last throughout a day just for its softness...so use it as toppings. ..do not use it for piping to decorate a cake.
